Deceived (A Kelly Pruett Mystery)
by Mary Keliikoa
The story is well-written, well-paced, and Keliikoa hooks the reader early.

~Books A Plenty Book Reviews
This is my first experience with both the Kelly Pruett mysteries and author Mary Keliikoa. I dove into Deceived headfirst and I was not disappointed.
I thoroughly enjoyed Deceived and was kept wondering who the killer could be until the end. This is an excellent addition to the female-PI genre, and I look forward to reading more from this author.

In the third thrilling book in the Kelly Pruett mystery series–Her world was falling into place. Then women started dropping off the map.
PI Kelly Pruett finally feels like she’s coming into her own. With her personal life well on track, a gig uncovering what drove a client’s granddaughter underground could be good for business. But after her undercover operation at the homeless shelter reveals rampant drug dealing, she’s suddenly kicked off the case… just as another girl goes missing.
Vowing to expose the truth even if it means pro-bono work, Kelly is taken aback when her half-sister helps her hunt down answers in a tent city brimming with distrust. When her investigation doesn’t move quickly enough to save a second woman from a vicious murder, Kelly doubles her efforts unwilling to accept defeat.
